governance survey and are the basis for our discussion for the first 45 minutes of this edition of the "washington journal." good morning. today is saturday, september 29. we want to find out from you about divided government. are you in favor of it? would you prefer to see one party, two parties, three parties? one party versus divided government, your preferences is our topic for the first segment of the program. 202-585-3880 is our number for democrats. republicans can call us at 202-585-3881. independents, 202-585-3882. if you're calling outside the u.s., 202-585-3883. we'll show you those numbers throughout the segment. if you want to get in touch with us via social media, the address, twitter, twithtwith cspanwj. on facebook, it's facebook.com/cspan. if you want to send us an email, that address is journal @organize org. -- is journal @c-span.org. this is the gallup poll we're talking about. it's the gallup annual governance survey. they write while americans tend to lean toward one-party government over divided government in presidential election years, this year finds th
numbers on leaky boats and some sadly have been drowning at sea trying to get here. the government has been under a lot of pressure from the opposition to take a tougher policy to deter votes from making history. finally, the government act down and embraced the opposition's policy. after it was recommended by an expert panel. i asylum-seekers will now be sent to the tiny pacific country of not move and an island. have the claims process. rather than on shore here in austria. it's what the opposition wanted your but opposition leader didn't let the government get away without reminding them of the political backflip they have just done. >> are there any questions speak with my question is to the prime minister. and i thank the prime minister for finally a docking one element in the coalition's border protection policy. namely offshore processing. and i ask when will she a doubt the other two elements in our policy, namely turning boats around where it is safe to do so and protection bases that are also necessary if we are finally to stop the votes? >> the prime minister as the call. >>
in benghazi were attacks on america. we are grateful for the assistance we received from the libyan government and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. and i also appreciate that in recent days, the leaders of other countries in the region -- including egypt, tunisia and yemen -- have taken steps to secure our diplomatic facilities, and called for calm. and so have religious authorities around the globe. but understand, the attacks of the last two weeks are not simply an assault on america. they are also an assault on the very ideals upon which the united nations was founded -- the notion that people can resolve their differences peacefully, that diplomacy can take the place of war, that in an interdependent world, all of us have a stake in working towards greater opportunity and security for our citizens. if we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy, or to put out statements of regret and wait for the outrage to pass. if we are se
a government representative rather than just direct my%. host: girls age 14 can get birth control at new york's schools. that's one story you probably have heard about. and in the "new york times this morning, there's this in their national section -- they are frustrated with mayor rahm emanuel. in florida, a democratic caller, good morning. caller: thanks for taking my call. good morning. the u.n. was created, basically, to undermine the united states. they tried at first with the league of nations. people in our government back then would not accept it. so then they came back with fdr with the united nations. he was progressive and he jumped right into it. if you just look, nobody in the un is our friend, hardly anybody. it was basically created to undermine the united states. host: what about japan, the united kingdom, france, spain, mexico? caller: i think mexico was complicity with the gunrunning thing and mexico is not really our friend at. japan, i don't know. but for the most part, everything out that the united states wants to do usually gets voted down by china and russia, who are a
in state government debts as well. now my final number: $50,000 is the median household income. so, we owe $12,000 more than we make. that means as a nation what we owe now exceeds what we have. that also means even if you confiscate all that we make every penny of its you would not come close to covering what we spend, any of it. that is the issue the guys should be hammering tomorrow night, how vulnerable we are. the guy would lays it out would not just be reframing the debate but setting off a firestorm. but one that need not concern him or us. as the fine of the mind in both political parties have told me, and, yes, there are still quite a few, to quote a certain vice presidential candidate, we can do this. listen to two guys on my fox business network show, which if you don't get you should demand, last night, retired democratic senator sam nunn and former republican senator bob bennett appears jointly on fox business network. each offering relatively modest proposals to fix this mess. listen closely. >> we particularly have to discuss, frankly, with the american people, that the enti
mohammed. the president today said the u.s. government had nothing to do with the video and condemned the backlash. he defended the constitution from protecting the trite practice free speech. >> americans have fought and died around the globe to protect the right of all people to express their views, even views we disagree with. we do fault do so because we support hateful speech but because our founders understood without such protection the capacity of each individual expressed their own views and practiced their own faith could be threatened. >>shepard: the president addressed the ongoing nuclear stand off with iran during accusations from republicans, including governor romney, that president obama's policies have not slowed iran's nuclear march. >> let me be clear: america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy. we believe this is still time and space to do so. that time is not unlimited. make no mistake, a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. it would threaten the security of israel and the stability of the global economy. that's why the united st
and the democrats. how they essentially tried to bring the federal government's financial house to some kind of order. the answer is they failed. we have a federal government whose financial house is in total disorder, total disarray. it is a historic problem. to try to put it in english, we have a trillion dollars of iou outstanding in the world. the negotiations, they agreed to raise what they call the debt ceiling, so the government can borrow a couple more trillion dollars. we are going to run it run out of that borrowing authority january or february of next year. they're going to have to go back and authorized congress for more trillions of dollars of borrowing. the republicans and lots of people in congress don't want to authorize that. so there is going to be a bloody negotiation, unless they can work a deal. in a sense, this is a book about the past, but it's about the present. it is about where we are going and what the country's future is. if you think about it i would argue that the inability of the government to fix this borrowing debt deficit issue in the book, vice president b
debates later on. maybe you two can negotiate that. if you cut government benefits -- a secretly recorded video of mitt romney at a private fund- raiser was made public -- let's take a look. >> 47% of the people -- who will vote for the president a matter what. who believe the government has responsibility to care for them. who believe they are entitled to health care and food and housing, you name it. that is an entitlement. >> texas -- in 2010, 30.5% of texans filing era -- return paid no income tax. there is no data on how many texans get government assistance, but the census bureau found 24% get social security. 20 -- 14% did retirement income. 5% disability bed -- benefits and 14% from strands. mr. cruz, do you believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power
means, $16 trillion in debt, just means the expansion of government. poll after poll shows the american people and american voters are concerned about how big the federal government has been getting. i hear a lot of repeats in what they're asking for. president obama may not be implementing an environmental policy that is directly geared toward climate change, but look at the epa policies under president obama. they are geared toward addressing climate change in terms of regulations on coal mines. in terms of immigration reform we have seen president obama work on the. >> translator: and we just saw his executive order that looked very similar to that piece of legislation. it's kind of a repeatable we have already seen and a little out of touch with people concerned about right now. neil: i wonder if it is part of the perceived victor's already claiming the spoils. i suppose it mitt romney were the runaway favorite, you are seizing on keeping open those facilities and military contracts or jobs that could be imperiled as a result of even automatic sequestration. so are we seeing somethi
to the foreign governments. he wants a more sophisticated interplay. that was where he was going with this. but he cited the initiative as the model that he would like to pursue. he said what bill clinton has done is a model for how far rin policy can go. many thanks. >> let's get right to our guests. retired four star general. general mccaffery, can i get your take on something, iran saying they have a big missile test and is this bs or is it real? >> i think they are trying to project eemense military power. i do think they have the batteries to close down the gulf for any kind of confrontation. military force is not the option in the gulf. >> but you could surmise that they were taking this test. because ahmadinejad was talking on the news yesterday. normally they would show us pictures. i'm skeptical, did anything happen at all or is this off the radar screen, nothing, zero? >> they have constructed a m missile industry and a lot of it was the russian defecting scientist. this is a third tier military power. >> let me ask you this, once again, president obama today at the un blamed the
between them more than any of us. so what is the government doing? after 2014, where there is a new kind of american focus on the region, and i would like to think if all goes as well as i hope it will, it will be somewhat more focused on maintaining the peace in pakistan and investing in pakistan's long-term future and society a little bit more than in its politics. similarly, to expect pakistan will be altered is not realistic. i do not think we can apply it we can make pakistan into switzerland and a few years as -- in a few years by fixing them up. i do not think that will happen. nor would it be right for us to think that is a worthy goal. we should see if we can do what we can to help the efforts to internationalize pakistan. it is an inward-looking country. this bilateral narrative and focus. sadly, when you talk to pakistanis and they talk about seeing the tail lights of south korea, turkey, and bangladesh, seeing them ahead of them. koreans sent teams to pakistan in the 1960's find out what pakistan had done right. the ambassador of thechinese introduced them to one of these pro
surprising? >> no, it is what we should have expected when the government said we're going to spend trillions of dollars and no one will pay for it. neil: how could you think millions coming on a system, with preexisting conditions, and so much else that whether you were for the heartfelt decency and goodness that you would not see premiums go up to cover th them? >> obama and democrats said they were going to ben the cost curve down, that sounds like a good idea, but there are two parts of obamacare that quote, unquote safsafesave money, they stop pag hospitals 700 plus billion, just cut medicare. which cuts what hospitals can do for you. the other par is the committee that will deny care, the only part that drops the cost of health care, because they will save you at certain ages and certain diseases, you can't get that operation, you can't get the more expensive medicine. those are the only ways they reduce cost. neil: so, -- >> overall there are increases. they are adding a tax on all medical devices. how does that reduce the cost? >> leaves that aside, i could argue the math could get in
over the years. there's two main categories they have. one is how to reduce the size of government, and the other half of it is this model legislation that's in the corporate good. in other words, there's a profit driven legislation. how can you open up a new market? how can you privatize something that can open up a market for a company? and between those two divisions you are kind of getting to the same end goal which is really kind of ultimate privatization of everything. >> mark pocan is something of an expert on alec. in fact, to learn as much about it as he could, he became a member. >> what i realized is if you join alec for a mere hundred dollars as a legislator you have the full access like any corporate member. >> he also took himself to an alec conference for a first-hand look. >> hi, i'm state representative mark pocan. welcome to my video blog. i'm outside the marriott on canal street in new orleans at the alec convention, american legislative exchange council. that was where you watch the interaction of a room full of lobbyists-free drinks, free cigars, wining, dining
the health- care system overnight, but one thing we can do is not rely on the government or the insurance companies. we can make this system more transparent so that you do not have to walk in blind when you choose your health care. if patients are increasingly frustrated with the problems of health care, know that a recent mayo study found that 46 percent of doctors feel they are burnt out. there is frustration on both sides. we have to face an important question now as a society. are we going to believe as a groups that patients have our right to know about the quality of their hospitals? for the first time, this information is being collected. if it brought there for the public more completely, if they could make -- if it was out there for the public more completely, they could make more informed decisions. host: yvonne and maryland accurate -- yvonne in maryland. caller: i have a question for you. i have a family member that is at a local hospital. they went in for a potassium replacement. i thought they would get it in the emergency room and just be there for one or two days. now the
in the transition to democracy, i am convinced that ultimately government of the people, by the people, and for the people is more likely to bring about prosperity and individual opportunity to serve as a basis for peace in our world. host: in "the herald," they put it this way -- host: dallas, texas. bob, independent line. caller: i am more of a liberal, but i applied my beliefs liberally to all issues. when the iranian president speaks about eliminating or wiping israel off the map, we must remember that one country was eliminated, wiped out, and that was palestine. no one speaks to that. he does not speak about annihilating. and i hate to defend him. he is all the things i find abhorrent as a liberal, but this year, we try to demonize this person when the issue is israel, a theocracy in the middle east that eliminated another country off the map, palestine. it is only for people within the same religion. it is ridiculous. and his support comes from, you know, the same people who support that right here in america. thank you. host: carol, california. what is the name of your town? go
and they form a political party, there may be some deal done that gives them some positions in government in the run-up to the election as there is to perform political party community talk about amnesties. there would need to be cease-fires. all of that is asserted and you would to discuss any genuine political process. that hasn't started. >> to the extent to which we, we the whole of the international community has been participating, provided a substitute economy and afghanistan to start up allow me to develop so far. is that the incentive? is there some economic incentive that brings them into this process? is it that that's going to solve the problem is it's not constitutional matters in human rights and everything clicks >> we need to start reducing the amount of money these then on afghanistan. >> howell to be sustainable within itself? >> the economic process is one where we have to keep helping the afghans fun the development for 10 years beyond what they get on with developing the mineral resources. at the same time, trying to execute a political process to reduce the pressure
-- no one thinks israel is about to drop a bomb on tehran. so, the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror and look, no one talks about this very much, but if they had a nuclear weapon, they would be too dangerous. even if you believe they would never use it. if you believe they are sane and rational and their country, their civilization would be destroyed if they dropped a bomb on someone because everyone would know it and the retaliation would be incomprehensible. even if you believe that, too bad things will happen. a lot of their neighbors will get bombs. the more of these weapons you have hanging around, the more material you have, the more it will be stolen or sold or transferred to terrorists. that brings me to the second point, which is that iran has all these extensive contacts with terrorist groups and even if the government didn't sanction it, it wouldn't be that much trouble to get girl scout cookies worth of material -- it's enough to take out 20% to 25% of washington, d.c. just that little bit. so, the prospect of spreading, in a way, dirty
. in massachusetts, two social pioneers brought corporations and government and volunteers together to form city year, the model for americorps. i sat with then candidate for president bill clinton as he investigated the life-changing successes which occurred when young people came together for a year of service, linked in teams with corporate sponsors. then, as the head of the 2002 winter olympic games, i saw again the stunning success than comes when the disparate elements of a community join together in unity, to overcome challenges that had seemed insurmountable before. the initiative has demonstrated the effectiveness of entrepreneurship and social enterprise. we endeavor not only to comfort and assuage the pains of the afflicted, but also to change lives, and change the lives through freedom, free enterprise, through entrepreneurship, and the incomparable dignity associated with work. free enterprise has done more to bless humanity than any other system, not only because it is the only system that treats a -- creates a prosperous middle class, but because it is the only system where the individ
are grateful for the assistance we received from the libyan government and the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. i also appreciate that in recent days, the leaders of other countries have been reached, including egypt, tunisia and yemen, they have taken steps to ensure our diplomatic facilities. so of religious authorities around the globe. -- so have religious authorities around the globe. these attacks are not simply an attack on america. they are also an assault on the very ideals on which the united nations was founded. the notion that people can resolve their differences, diplomacy can take the place of war. that as an interim dependent world, all of us have a stake in working toward greater opportunity and security for ourselves. -- our citizens. if we are serious about upholding these ideals, it will not be enough to put more guards in front of an embassy or put out statements of regret and with for the outrage to pass -- if we are serious about these ideals, we must speak honorably about the
that shortly on the big headline getter. >> does the government have responsible to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have care today? >> we do provide care. if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die, we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. some provide that care through clinics, some provide the care through emergency rooms. in my state we found a solution that worked for my state. i wouldn't take what we did in massachusetts and say to texas, you have to take the massachusetts model. >> he points to the massachusetts model, that's what he's trying to eliminate by providing universal coverage. it was mitt romney's rational for his own plan back in 2010. here he is back then on msnbc's "morning joe." >> do you believe in universal coverage? >> oh, sure. look, it doesn't make a lot of sense for us t
government continues to prop up the dictator in damascus and supports terrorist groups abroad. time and again it has failed to take the up today to demonstrate that its nuclear program is peaceful. meeting the obligations to the united nations. that is why the united states will do what we must to prevent a run from obtaining a nuclear weapon. lou: the president was careful in his language. radical islam not mentioned once in his speech even though there is convincing evidence and a consensus that it was not an attack carried out by terrorists with links by al qaeda if not led by al qaeda. president obama did defend israel in the context of the 2-dissolution the palestine. president obama did not use the word allied to it specifically describe our relationship with the jewish state. the president refused one-on-one meetings with any of the world leaders. this is the same man who, as a candidate, pledged to, more than four years ago, the with our enemies without preconditions. he criticized the bush administration's unilateralism. >> the notion that i am not talking to countries is punishment
to it that the real debate is about how we get it done and also the nature of the government that is the consequence of how gets them. obviously government will grow. if you shrink the budget the government will retract and that has implications to the budget. it's an ongoing debate always in america but if you think about what has been accomplished in the last year everyone knows we have to solve the problem. how to solve what has resulted in an impasse and, but the fact that everybody agrees it needs to be solved is really the most important thing. >> but it seems to me that it's a math problem and as you said, if you have got you know slow but stable growth for an extended period of time here than ultimately the raponos have to go up and expenditures have to go down. neither of which is particularly healthy in terms of economic growth. if you have taxes going up in the united states and expenditures going down ultimately that has to happen if you are going to solve that math problem in a slow growth while. >> at the same in europe and the same everywhere. we all grew up with spending more money.
a bomb on tehran. the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror. no one talking about this very much but if they had a nuclear weapon they would be very dangerous. even if they never use it. even if you believe that too bad things will happen if they get a bomb. that brings me to the second point that iran has the extensive contacts with terrorist groups. it put in the same fertilizer bomb that timmy mcvey used in oklahoma city. just that little bit. the prospect of spreading in a way dirty nuclear bombs with smaller payloads that would reek havoc and do unfold damage goes up every time some new country gets this capacity and you don't have any control over and you don't know whether they do over what happens to the fiscal material. >> if israel was to launch a strike because they believe that iran is right on the cusp of developing a nuclear weapon. if they do that what should america's response be? >> i shouldn't answer that question because of my wife's position. that's the president and security team desire of a decision to make. i generally have conf
borrow directly from the government. now obama proposes to slow tuition growth by increasing state grants. yet he would need congress to help fund that. >> i'm not going to go out and promise all sorts of free stuff i know you're going to end up paying for. what i want to do is give you a great job so you'll be able to pay it back yourself. >> reporter: mitt romney's plan to help students, remove burdensome regulations and get the government out of the student loan business. romney says the flood of federal dollars just drives up tuition. molly broad of the american council on education says the recession's heavy toll on state budgets is also a factor. >> when the state reduces its support, the only other place to turn for most colleges in the public sector is to increase tuition. >> reporter: either way, students like jackie feel left out in the cold. >> a lot of people who don't have students in college or don't have kids my age just think, you're either wealthy enough to go to college or you get financial aid from the government. and it is aththat simple, but is not that simple. >> rep
of revised gdp numbers from last week. the government claims that the economy is growing at 1.3%. but they also claim that inflation is annualizing out at 1.6%. if inflation is actually 3% right now and not 1.6%, the economy is already contracting. and you're talking about the dow jones this morning being up. in terms of gold today. it's actually down. in fact, the do u-is now worth less than 7.8 ounces of gold. down more and 80% since the bear market began 12 years ago, so, it's not that the stock market's going up, it's not. the value of our money is going down. >> that's interesting, peter. let me show you the original question. you say we are in a recession already, then in 2013, does it get much worse? i'm looking for time frame on the real spiral down here. >> well, it's going to get worse, it's going to get a lot worse, when interest rates finally respond to all of this inflation by rising and then we go over the real fiscal-- >> hold on a second. >> the party's over e i hate to interrupt you peter, i'm sorry, look, you say the party is over when interest rates start to
the people. this is the way the framers of the constitution intended our government to be, a government that comes from the people. over time we have developed a government that comes at the people, that comes from the top down, where the people are more or less treated as objects to be programmed during the campaign with commercials and media events and fear messages and personal attacks and things of that nature. the thing that separates my candidacy and makes it unique is that this came from millions of people in 50 states all over this country who wanted a candidate that worked and belonged to nobody but them. i go into this race as their servant, and i belong to them. so this comes from the people. >> governor clinton, a one minute response. >> the most important distinction in this campaign is that i represent real hope for change, a departure from trickle-down economics, a departure from tax and spend economics, to invest in growth. but before i can do that, i must challenge the american people to change, and they must decide. tonight i say to the president: mr. bush, for 12 year
incumbent president would be at an enormous disadvantage. unless-- >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care and different states have different ways of providing for that care. (laughter) >> jon: unless-- normally he would be in trouble unless that incumbent president is running against the guy who just appeared to suggest that we don't need to do a health care plan for uninsured americans because we have emergency rooms! (laughter) and, like, they're open all night. (laughter) they're, like, 7-elevens but-- (cheers and applause) now that-- what he just said is an amazing and unappealing to -lsy statement which on its own would perhaps level the field for the incumbent president but apparently leveling the field isn't good enough for massachusetts mitt "up until i was running for president in the republican primary i believed fervently in the exact opposit
